Curated and facilitated by Studio Edwards Elasticity builds on the first show held in 2018 and forms part of an ongoing body of work within the alt.material collective. Inviting leading designers to create prototypes & experimental works in response to the theme ‘elasticity’ NGV Melbourne Design Week.
Globules are a multifunctional object that can be gently shaped to create a variety of elastic shapes and fulfil a variety of uses.
Responding to the theme ‘Elasticity’ through the production of ‘an object for use’ which can be interpreted as to how something can resume its shape after being stretched or compressed or ‘an ability to adapt in response to change Globules were designed to be created as simply and directly as possible.
Globules have been created using minimal and readily available materials that create zero waste at the end of their use. The biodegradable outer form is produced from the rubber tree, and the sand contained within is a local renewable resource.
